Greystone Welcomes Andrew Warren to Affordable Housing Preservation Group
June 13, 2013
Greystone announced the addition of Andrew Warren to the firm’s affordable housing preservation division as Director of Investments. He will report to Tanya Eastwood, head of Greystone’s Affordable Housing Initiatives, and will be based out of the firm’s New York City office.
As one of the nation’s leading providers of affordable housing recapitalization and rehabilitation transaction management services, Greystone has rehabilitated and preserved over 3,200 units, with another 7,200 in various stages of completion across the United States. In his role as Director of Investments, Mr. Warren will lead the group’s efforts in raising equity capital for properties through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program, as well as securing debt and financing through various partnerships.
“Andrew’s expertise in LIHTC and affordable housing financing will be invaluable, as we look to continue to provide creative solutions and crucial financing for properties across the country,” said Eastwood. “With many of the USDA Rural Development properties reaching the end of their useful life periods, combined with limited resources available, innovative financing structures are a vital component for the preservation of these affordable housing communities.”
Prior to joining Greystone, Mr. Warren served as the Director of Portfolio Management at Centerline Capital Group, where he oversaw the Fund Management and Fund Originations Groups, and was responsible for structuring, marketing and managing a portfolio comprised of more than 1,200 LIHTC properties and $10 billion of tax credit equity. As an Associate in Centerline’s Tax Credit Acquisitions Group, Warren sourced, underwrote and closed real estate transactions comprising more than $500 million of equity investment and $100 million of debt financing for affordable properties and leading to the new construction or preservation of more than 7,500 affordable apartments across the country.
Mr. Warren, 31, received a Bachelors of Science in Policy Analysis and Management from Cornell University, and is a member of the Young Leadership Council for the New York Housing Conference.
